Unless you yourself are a gamer, when you hear "video game" you probably think of the Xbox, Playstation, or Wii. In reality, however, games that can be played on a personal computer (PC games) have a huge chunk of the market. These games have many advantages over console games. First and foremost, they can be played on your computer, without needing to buy any of the expensive consoles. Second, computers can be upgraded easily, whereas an old Xbox is simply obsolete, and cannot be upgraded. Third, a mouse and keyboard provide better control than a console controller. The precision and speed you can achieve can't be beat. Finally, many of the hottest games are available only for PC, particularly online multiplayer games that have a chatting component (requiring a keyboard) or numerous multi-key command possibilities (also requiring a keyboard). Whatever your reasons for playing PC games are, these are the top PC games of the moment.

World of Warcraft (WoW) was released in 2004, but as of June 2011 the game has 11.1 million subscribers. It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that allows players to live a virtual life in the mythical world of Azeroth. You can chat with your comrades, gang up on in-game monsters, buy items in the auction house, or make money through a profession. It has pretty much been among the top PC games since it was released and will likely continue to hold the spot for many years. Expansions and patches keep game content fresh and an army of in-game moderators make sure everyone stays in line.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the company responsible for World of Warcraft has created other top PC games, including Starcraft. It's a military science-fiction type of universe, and is widely regarded as one of the most important PC game franchises of all time for how it raised the bar on industry standards. Whatever the latest version of Starcraft is, it's sure to be one of the top PC games on the market. At the moment it's Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which the player has to build a civilization from scratch. You can start the game as one of many historical leadership figures, from George Washington to Gandhi, and must deal with all the headaches of building an empire. The first edition of the game launched in 1991 and sequels have been coming out ever since, all very popular with PC gamers and highly ranked. Civilization V was released in 2010 and received excellent reviews.

Some games are less about strategy and more about combat. Fallout 3 is set in a nuclear wasteland and players get to navigate U.S. monuments in a decaying post-apocalyptic atmosphere. You can approach every situation you find yourself in in a variety of ways, and these decisions will impact how the gameplay unfolds. The world in Fallout 3 may be depressing, but it's highly detailed and expansive. Combat is praised for being varied, rather than just pressing the same buttons over and over. These qualities won Fallout 3 several game of the year awards. It may not be brand new, but it's still a very popular play and replay with PC gamers.

A more recent game of the year is Borderlands, a hybrid between a first person shooter and a traditional role playing game. The game is set on the far off planet of Pandora, and battles with freakish creatures and alien animals are plentiful. The game is well known for its unique style of in-game art, combining animation with hand-drawn aesthetics for a finished product that looks like it could be a live action comic book. As with many top PC games, a sequel has been announced and is expected in 2012.
